Country

England

Dorsett signed his first professional deal with the club in October 2019, just days after making his international debut for the England Under-18 side in wins over Austria and Poland.

Almost a year later in September 2020, the young defender signed a contract extension keeping him at the club until the summer of 2022.

The centre-back was a regular for our Under-18s during the 2019-20 season and he came off the bench back in January to make his first team bow in an FA Cup victory over Blackpool.

In replacing fellow Academy graduate Andre Burley at the back, Jeriel added his name to the Academy Honours Board at Madejski Stadium, becoming the 56th player to come through the ranks at Reading and feature for our first team.

He then made his first Royals start in January 2021, during a 1-0 FA Cup Third Round defeat to Luton Town.
